  • 10 medium san marzano or roma tomatoes roasted
  • 2 large carrots peeled and roasted
  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and roasted
  • 1 small onion or large shallot diced
  • 1 Tbs. tomato paste
  • 1 Tbs. Ras el Hanout
  • 6 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 15oz canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed or 2 cups cooked couscous (optional)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Slice tomatoes in half, toss with olive oil and and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Place face down on a parchment lined, rimmed baking sheet.
  2. Chop the sweet potato and carrots into large cubes. Place on a separate rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment. Also toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Roast at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven settings) until the tomatoes are soft and caramelized and sweet potatoes and carrots are browning and tender. The tomatoes are usually done in 10-15 min.
  4. While they roast, prepare your other ingredients.
  5. In a large stock pot, heat 1 Tbs olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chopped shallots and cook about 3-4 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the tablespoon of tomato paste, stir it around a few times. Add 1 Tablespoon of Ras el Hanout and mix well. Add 5 cups of vegetable broth, cover and simmer on low.

  6. Once all the vegetables are roasted, let them cool for a few minutes. Use a blender, Cuisinart or immersion blender pureé them with the remaining 1 cup of vegetable broth. You can go completely smooth here or leave some whole pieces.
  7. Add the pureed ingredients to the pot and stir until combined. Add a tsp of salt and simmer until soup is warmed through. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Optional: Add can of chickpeas or cooked couscous.
